Summary

"The dead are restless here...." 
Remy is a tour guide for Carrow House, a notoriously haunted building. When she's asked to host seven guests for a week-long stay to research Carrow's phenomena, she hopes to finally experience some of the sightings that made the house famous.
At first, it's everything they hoped for. Then a storm moves in, cutting off their contact with the outside world, and things quickly become twisted. Doors open on their own. Seances go disastrously wrong. Red liquid seeps from behind the wallpaper. Their spirit medium wanders through the house during the night, seemingly in a trance.
Then one of the guests dies under strange circumstances, and Remy is forced to consider the possibility that the ghost of the house's original owner, a twisted serial killer, still walks the halls.
But by then it's too late to escape.

Keeps you guessing!

Loved it. Kept me guessing all the way through.
Narration was good and writing brilliantly done.

Uninspired

I keep searching for a scary haunted house book, and it's so hard to find a good one! Knowing that, I give them more leeway than other genres. This is my second (and last) Darcy Coates book; her writing is just not very good (apologies to Ms. Coates). I listened to ten chapters of this book and turned it off with an eye-roll.

THE SET UP
Haunted house with really interesting back-story used now only for guided tours. Tour guide asked to stay in the house for two weeks with a group of people for research.

WEAKNESSES
- Poor character development. Flat, cookie-cutter characters. Painfully stereotypical. Spongebob Squarepants' characters are more complex - and I'm not even kidding.
- Basic dialogue. Nothing interesting at all.
- Good story made boring: author glossed over the most interesting elements of the story (there *is* a good premise buried in there somewhere) and weighed the book down with boring details.
- Pacing. If anything scary happens, it isn't within the first 10 chapters.
- Narration. A professional-sounding voice actor, just not a good fit for the book. Chirpy tone better suited for a bodice-ripper, and over-done character voices (17 year old girl sounded 12; 60-ish woman sounded 95).


Just a heavy-handed and decidedly un-scary effort all around.

Check these out instead (not perfect, but solidly creepy):
Lineage - Joe Hart
Kill Creek - Scott Thomas
The Good House - Tananarive Due

Good Luck!

This Ones A Winner!

I read a few books from this author and they were ok. But this one, was a winner. The story, combined with the brilliant narration, I give it 5⭐s. The narrator, she was amazing. It was only her narrating but the way she switched between characters was flawless. The different voices, I could distinguish each voice from each character. To be perfectly honest, the way she narrated this book, she made the story come alive! what a talented blessing she has!🤗
